Episode 4 - Peter Jaworski on paid plasma donation
In this episode, Peter Jaworski talks about the practice of paid plasma donation, whether it’s ethical to allow it, and his work to advocate for it to be legalized in more jurisdictions. He answers questions such as:
Which country used to run clinics in a former colony to pay their former colonial subjects for their plasma?
Why can’t we just synthesize what we need out of plasma?
What percentage of US exports by dollar value does plasma account for?
If I want to gather plasma, is it cheaper to pay donors, or not pay them?
Is legal paid plasma donation one step towards a dystopia?
